Scripsense Sponsors the Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast

Orange County Girl Scouts are Pictured at the Women's Philanthropy Fund Breakfast

What do Earvin “Magic” Johnson, the Girl Scouts, and Orange County professionals all have in common? They are all going to be present at the upcoming Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast on May 8, 2018, at the Hotel Irvine Jamboree Center.

Every year Orange County United Way hosts an event that highlights breakfast as the most important meal of the day while providing an avenue for 800 professionals to raise funds for the next generation. Earvin “Magic” Johnson is a well-respected retired professional basketball player and the current president of basketball operations of the LA Lakers.  He is this year’s Orange County United Way Keynote Speaker and is sure to provide some great insight into how to overcome challenges as they come.

All funds at this event will be raised for at-risk women and children. Having raised more than $2 million in the past, this event is crucial in giving at-risk women and children access to health care services, reading programs, after-school activities, physical fitness, career guidance, and even help with finding permanent housing.

Scripsense, a digital fundraising marketplace, is a proud sponsor of the Women’s Philanthropy Fund Breakfast because our company values enabling others to give back to their communities. This year’s event is sold out but to learn more about how you can still get involved, click here.

Melinda Masson Joins Dr. Mark Maier and Howard Behar for DinnerMelinda Masson, Scripsense Co-Founder/CEO, attended dinner yesterday evening with Dr. Mark Maier, Chapman University’s Organizational Leadership School Founder, and guest Howard Behar. Behar is the former Starbucks President of North America and the founding President of Starbucks International. During his career, he assisted in growing the company from 28 stores to more than 15,000.

Together they discussed the lessons learned from his life at Starbucks such as how to put people first and that while you can “train pets,” people should be “educated and coached.”

Woman Looking At Her Computer Happily After Making Online Donations To Her Favorite Cause.

New Feature Alert: Scripsense announces that organizations can now accept direct monetary donations through the “Donate Now” feature on the site! To make this feature available to you, please contact us at support@scripsense.com.

There are many ways to fundraise today and it can be difficult to determine what method is best for your organization. There are several positives to fundraising online. Below are 4 benefits that shed light on how online donations can really make a positive impact on your fundraising goals today:

  1. Around the Clock Fundraising

       Everyone is motivated by different situations when it comes to giving back to their community. For instance, when a natural disaster occurs that is a time when many come together. Everyone has busy schedules and they may not be able to make it to the onsite fundraising event that they want so badly to attend. Having an online donation feature on your site enables your members to donate at the time of their choosing and at a time that is financially best for them.

2. Simplicity of Options

      In our fast-paced world, we are frequently asked to make decisions on the spot. When it comes to ways to spend money or make purchases, these options are even greater, but it can be overwhelming. Giving your members the opportunity to avoid one less decision and simply donate to the positive cause of their choosing can increase their chances of participating and help simplify their life.

3. High Velocity, Low Touch

     After adding a donation feature to your organization’s site, it can handle a high volume of transactions and it will provide a savvy financial report for month’s end. Should your members have questions, they can contact support@scripsense.com for assistance! Your organization can continue to earn while you go about the rest of your day without concern.

4. Ease of Use and the Ability to Participate Quickly

     Reach your campaign goals faster by giving your members the opportunity to participate quickly and easily. Your members will likely have a deadline of when they need to reach their individual goals. Having an online donation feature available enables them to reach their goal at the push of a button.
